Caught in the act: In vivo development of macrolide resistance to Campylobacter jejuni infection

Academic Article


  • We report the first instance of macrolide resistance developing in vivo following appropriate antibiotic use in a healthy volunteer as a part of a controlled human infection with Campylobacter jejuni. In vivo development of macrolide resistance may be an important contributor to antibiotic resistance in C. jejuni. Copyright © 2010, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.
